Liberty is an inherently offensive lifestyle. Living in a free society guarantees that each one of us will see our most cherished principles and beliefs questioned and in some cases mocked. That psychic discomfort is the price we pay for basic civic peace. It's worth it. It's a pragmatic principle. Defend everyone else's rights, because if you don't there is no one to defend yours. -- MaxedOutMama

I don't just want gun rights... I want individual liberty, a culture of self-reliance....I want the whole bloody thing. -- Kim du Toit

The most glaring example of the cognitive dissonance on the left is the concept that human beings are inherently good, yet at the same time cannot be trusted with any kind of weapon, unless the magic fairy dust of government authority gets sprinkled upon them.-- Moshe Ben-David

The cult of the left believes that it is engaged in a great apocalyptic battle with corporations and industrialists for the ownership of the unthinking masses. Its acolytes see themselves as the individuals who have been "liberated" to think for themselves. They make choices. You however are just a member of the unthinking masses. You are not really a person, but only respond to the agendas of your corporate overlords. If you eat too much, it's because corporations make you eat. If you kill, it's because corporations encourage you to buy guns. You are not an individual. You are a social problem. -- Sultan Knish

All politics in this country now is just dress rehearsal for civil war. -- Billy Beck

Well, Mitt has put his campaign on "hold" (i.e.: I quit, but didn't really say so). Huckabee doesn't have a prayer outside the Bible-belt, so that pretty much means that John McCain is a shoe-in for the Republican nomination.

If Hillary wins the Democratic nomination, it will be a horse-race to see which horse's-ass crosses the finish line first.

If Obama wins the Democratic nomination, I think he'll be the next President of the United States. Put him next to McCain on a stage and a public obsessed with American Idol ain't going to pick the cadaver.

Here's what each means, insofar as I can tell.

McCain: He'll keep us in Iraq until it's stable, even if that lasts throughout his term (I sincerely believe he's only going to get one.)

He MIGHT select decent judges for federal benches up to and including SCOTUS.

He will try to "work with the Democrats Left". The Republican Party will lurch even further Left with him.

"Immigration Reform"? Essentially open borders, and amnesty for everyone.

Hillary: We'll probably stay in Iraq until she can pull the troops out without looking like an international loser.

She WILL select Leftist judges who will be hell to stop, and who are perfectly comfortable wiping their asses with the Constitution.

She will LEAD the Democrats to even more social entitlement programs, greater spending, higher taxes, and the beating of the taxpayers will continue until morale improves. She may get two terms, too.

Either Hillary or one of her appointed Federal judges will find some way to foist "universal health care" on us all with her blessings.

Bill Clinton will be in the White House - again. Some fear he will be appointed to some high office or another. I think it's a reasonable fear. Hillary would probably like to get rid of him once she achieves her life's dream.

Obama: As CIC, I have no doubt that he'll yank our troops out of Iraq immediately, and then ignore whatever happens in Iraq, placing the blame on the Iraqi authorities for not taking care of their problems themselves. Expect a new wave of "boat people."

Immigration reform? Hell if I know.

Social programs? I think he's even farther Left than Hillary.

If either Hillary or Obama wins, I expect there to be a great exodus from the military. McCain? I don't know.

I have concluded, however, that Confederate Yankee has the right of it:
McCain for President. Or we're really screwed.
I expect to see that on bumper stickers very shortly.

I'm almost 46 years old. The next Presidential election will be 2012 and I will be 50. I'm getting too old for this sh!t.

I think it's past time that the Republican Party went the way of the Whigs, because if America doesn't get off its collective ass and continue to support individualism, personal responsibility, capitalism, and individual rights, it appears that no one is going to.
